Neilma Sidney Literary Travel Fund

Neilma Sidney Literary travel fund, through Writers Victoria, is a grant open to all (even public library staff!)

Named in honour of poet, novelist and short story writer Neilma Gantner (1922-2015), the travel fund recognises the unique value of travel in the development of new writing and literary careers.

In partnership with the Myer Foundation, the travel fund was launched in 2017 to emerging, midcareer and established Australian writers and literary sector workers. This includes writers, editors, agents, publishers, librarians, booksellers, employees and associates of literary organisations and journals, and other literary professionals currently living in Australia.

Applications for round 3 of the Neilma Sidney Literary Travel Fund will open on the 16 August and close on the 13 September 2018 and applicants can apply for grants between $2,000 to $10,000.

More information about the grant, including FAQs, terms and conditions and application form.
